4:05 pm
>> reporter: that's are publicly unchanged position was a deadline that's set. whether political theater or political reality, there's more mention going over the fiscal cliff could go beyond hypothetical. >> there's clearly a chance. >> i think we're going over the cliff. it's pretty clear to me they've made a political calculation. >> if they are going to force higher rates on virtually all americans because they're unwilling to let tax rates go up on 2% of americans, then, you know, that's the choice they're going to have to make. >> emily joins us live from washington. emily, the zinger sound bites, they're all piling up. what is the actual strategy behind all this political theater? what are you hearing from the republicans and from the democrats? >> reporter: you know, less than a month out now from going over the fiscal cliff. even talk about political strategy sounds an awful lot like posturing. we heard it from secretary geithner who said republicans seem to be in a hard place on this, not knowing what to do next. speaker boehner said, look, democrats won the election but they seem to have forgotten that
4:06 pm
republicans still control the house. at this point if there is any middle ground that has been found, it's happening behind closed doors. otherwise, publicly these lines in the sand do not appear to be any kind of shifting sand. >> all right. so publicly the lines in the sand. but what about face-to-face meeting? when is the next face-to-face meeting with the fiscal cliff. have they even attempted to schedule a meeting to talk about what could happen in the next few days? >> reporter: when we went into this weekend, there was an official who is very familiar with this situation who said that the white house and these congressional lead whose have the power to get past this impasse did not have any kind of future meetings on the books. we certainly didn't hear about any of those meetings on the sunday talk shows today, and no word that anything has been added to these calendars. >> all right. thank you very much. we appreciate it, emily. double tragedy strikes an nfl team and the fans and coaches rally in their grief and shock. i'm talking about kansas city

4:08 pm
to do today and we were able to do that and try to work our way through the tragedy, and knowing that it's not over today. it still will go on tomorrow, the next day, and the next day. but life is going to go on as well and we have to work through it. >> reporter: after the game few kansas city chiefs football players provided any kind of clues as to what javon belcher might have been struggling with in the days leading up to this tragedy when he killed his girlfriend at her honl and then took his own life at the team's practice facility and with all of that, they left behind a 3-month-old baby who is now orphaned. before the game kansas city chiefs organization started off the game with a moment of silence honoring all victims of domestic violence. a clear sign that they wanted to make sure that kasandra perkins, ja thon belcher's girlfriend, is not forgotten in all of this. >> thank you very much. we'll tell you about a courteous teacher who literally fought to

[ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes.

you can call it the perfect example about thinking twice before wearing your religion on your sleeve or bringing it into the workplace. angus t. jones of "two and a half men" found that out the hard way when an internet video surfaced of him urging viewers not to watch his hit show because it lacked christian values. >> jake from "two and a half men" means nothing. he's a nonexistent character. if you watch, please stop watching. i'm on "two and a half men" and i don't want to be on it. please stop watching it. please stop filling your head with filth. please. >> he later apologized to his co-workers and fellow cast mates saying he meant no disrespect. we decided to talk about this the one and only pat boone who has always been up front about his own christian faith.
4:32 pm
>> but i empathize with him because he finds himself into a situation now that he particularly has gotten serious about his faith where he's having to try to make a choice between what his faith calls him to and what his job, what he's being paid to do. it's a mess, i understand. >> kirk cameron is another former child actor who is outspoken about faith. here is what he told our kareen wynter. >> god gave me a very strong faith in something that would promise to lead me in positive directions. >> soings p, pat, cameron gets criticized. what if they joined a different faith, say islam. would other actors be making fun of them? >> that would be a very sensitive issue now because christians don't generally threaten your life, but in some cases there are those who if you -- as we know, make any kind
4:33 pm
of fun or say anything that seems disparaging about islam, there will be those who may threaten your life. >> let me jump in and play devil's advocate. people may say it may not be a direct threat where i'm going to harm you or kill you, but certainly things like repair tiff therapy or telling people that something is wrong with them because they're homosex you'll or they're not what is called the normal in society or what is expected. that can kill people justs a threatening them can do as well. >> well, we've gotten off the subject. i wanted to tell you about a decision i had to make as an actor some time ago. i was under contract to 20th century fox, and they wanted me to make a movie with marilyn monroe, and we were beth doioth very well at the box office and i had to turn the script down and say i can't do this. i risked suspension because it was an immoral story. they made the movie eventually with joanne woodward i think.
4:34 pm
but it was a kid with an affair with an older woman. couldn't go anywhere. it was immoral. and i had young fans and i said i can't do this. the head of the studio said, you know, we can suspend you and you won't work again. i said i understand you have to make your decisions based on your priorities, and i was only like 24 and i said i'm sorry, i just cannot make this film. so -- but, see, i was known as a christian from the beginning. i'm not in angus' kind of situation where he's recently become a serious christian. >> there were people, and i did as well when you said it, who took offense at what you said about islam when you said about muslims being threatening. but you said we've got -- >> well, i was asked the question -- you asked me the question -- >> i want you to explain yourself here. go ahead. >> yeah. you asked is there any difference between christians being criticized or say -- for taking a stand religiously or if
4:35 pm
islam -- somebody in islam made the same kind of a stand and i said the difference might be that if you criticize -- right now it's very sensitive criticizing islam and if you do, it is possible that you could, you know, you could be threatened with harm in some way. and actually i'm not defending criticizing anybody's religion because i think that's wrong and the whole idea of the constitution is to let everybody have a free say about what they believe, and we should, whether we agree or not, at least respect their opinion and their desire to serve god as they see him or in some cases her and have the freedom to do that. >> want to check your headlines. the kansas city chiefs won their second game of the season today. it was a game that the coaches and owners decided to play even
4:36 pm
though yesterday the team was rocked when one of their own committed suicide shortly after allegedly killing his girlfriend. >> it was very emotional, but you saw brothers stick together, coaches stick together, and everybody stayed strong and this is a great team. >> do you think the tragedy had something to do with your team playing better today? >> honesty, if we could erase yesterday, that would be a great blessing, but i think that the team if that wouldn't have happened, we would have came out here and fought hard, but you know what? that give us the extra to come out here and not take no for an answer. >> fiscal cliff talks are turning into a high stakes game of chicken. timothy geithner said there's no deal unless republicans agree to raise taxes on the wealthy. republicans are furious. they don't like democrats drawing a red line in the sand. president obama and the gop leaders have only held one face-to-face meeting on the fis calgary cliff since the

4:39 pm
of our straight and gay military folks, bi and trans, was really overwhelming. >> how did this come about? was west point receptive to your wedding plans? >> west point was great. west point was very supportive. you asked how this came about. we had long agreed that we were going to wait for new jersey to pass marriage. we've been together for 17 years, but at the beginning of this year when governor christie vetoed marriage equality we started thinking about other options. the more we thought about the possibility of marrying at west point with all of the connections and the meaning that west point holds for us, it just really seemed fitting. so this past summer i asked penny to mer me at west point. >> did you get down on one knee? >> i did get down within one knee and after these years of running, i needed three people
4:40 pm
to help me get back up. >> i love it. of a sense of humor is very important in all situations and i'm glad you have one. i have got to ask you though, sue, how meaningful was it for you as a west point graduate? >> it's hard to even put it into words. i don't know. i think that having so many cadets there, cadets that we've worked with and helped out and gotten to know, having so many recent graduates. we did a saber arch at the end of the service with four army officers and four cadets, and that to me i think, you know, i don't know what was the most meaningful for penny because we're still recovering, but that was really meaningful for me, seeing the future and seeing the joy on their faces and knowing that they can serve their country, they can have a career and still have the family and that they want. marry the person that they love
4:41 pm

really, but it felt -- it also felt right to us that it was a young lieutenant and her wife who were the first to marry at west point because it's the newly graduating cadets and the young lieutenants, the young officers, who are the ones who are most likely to get married at west point, and i think that was really great. >> yeah. clearly, clearly sue does most of the talking in this relationship. >> all of my friends watching this show now are nodding their heads going i knew she wouldn't let penny get a word in. >> this is for you, penny, and, you know, i have to say this and so people at home, whatever, don't be shocked by what i'm saying. i believe it's rights for everyone, this is a civil right for me. i went to two weddings this summer, a same-sex couple and a heterosexual couple and they were equally beautiful and lovely. all i kent skept saying is why would anyone want to deeye nigh this to any human being. >> i agree. why? what could we -- how could we possibly be threatening other

4:47 pm
that single people like more smartphones and people who are married like more tablets. each plays a bigger role in all of this. >> okay. >> usually married people are often older, which means they have more disposable income, they have a stable career, they have money to splurge which means you're able to actually have technology toys in comparison to a single person who doesn't have the same amount of money than when you are in a couple. you are able to divide that pleasure. another thing, when off couple, what is one of the things that you like to do? watch movies. >> together. >> yes. >> so you need a bigger device. is that what you're saying? >> no, but it's an easier way for you to share when you're in bed, at least according to the is it studies. houms have you gone in bed to watch a movie on netflix? probably you do it quite often. if you're in a relationship you will probably be able to share the tablet but it's not the same with a smartphone. >> or you could just put it up on the tv if you have a smart tv but then that's a whole other show. i have a smartphone and a

tablet. i have got them here. actually i have two smartphones and a tablet. aid blackberry and a smartphone -- is a blackberry considered a smartphone? my blackberry fell into the ocean so my company bought me an iphone. i have two iphones. what does it mean? >> it means you make a lot of money. >> no. >> yes. >> it means you make good money, at least according to the study. it shows that you should be making between $55,000 to $65,000 a year. anybody that makes over $50,000 probably has a smartphone and a tablet. a tablet probably for work and for business travels and a smartphone because you need to use a smartphone nowadays for any career. you need to check your e-mail. you need to do work related things. but if you have a smartphone or two phones, you have a tablet, a smart tv, and you have a desktop, you're over 100k according to the study. >> if you guys have all that out there. >> and a mercedes, imagine how much you make. >> oh, my goodness.
